Swamigal Speak

A homam is a sacrificial fire ritual sanctified by the Vedas and has been practiced in Bharata Varsha (Bharata’s country now known as India) from time immemorial. Performing a Homam or participating in the sacrificial sacred fire ceremony, frees one of many travails and tribulations mentally and physically, no matter if one is performing it or just participating in a Homam performed by others.

Every form of deity in the Hindu pantheon of Gods is symbolically represented by specific Vedic slokas and each such deity can be worshipped by a prescribed Homam ritual. Each deity, when invoked through fervent recitation of prescribed slokas and/or performing prescribed Homam rituals, confers specific benefits on the performer. For example, Lord Ganapathi when worshipped through recitation of appropriate slokas or Homam will remove all obstacles in the contemplated task for which His Grace is being invoked. Similarly, Goddess Saraswathi and /or Lord Hayagreeva would confer knowledge and wisdom. Goddess Chamundi, when invoked through appropriate Homam rituals, would confer victory over all evil forces and shower all kinds of material and spiritual prosperity on the performer and his kith and kin. Homam to Lord Varuna which when performed with fervor will bring rain to parched earth. Goddess Annapoorani, when invoked through Annapoorani Homam, would bless earth with super abundance of food grains.

Vedas have strictly and very elaborately prescribed as to how each such Homam ritual is to be performed. At the same time, the Vedas have also given tailor-made simple solutions suiting the economic capacity of the performer. In doing such rituals, whether elaborately or in a simple form, Vedas have enjoined on the Kartha (Performer) that they need to carry out the same through the active mediation of Vedic scholars who have attained mastery in relevant branch of Vedic rites and giving ritualistic offerings as prescribed in those rites at appropriate stages of performance of the Homam.

These Homams need to be performed based on astrological prescriptions by analysing the birth charts of individuals and prescribing, in performance of a particular Homam in propitiation of certain deity who will confer on the native (Kartha) certain sought-after benefits.

Taking into consideration the best time to perform the Homam as per the day’s Hora schedule and the time that should go well to solve the problems as per the Kartha’s birth chart, the experts then recommend the type of Homam and the auspicious day and time for performing it.

Vedic scholars perform the Homam rites in the most authentic way, not missing out on a single divine step to perform it, as the art of Homam lies in the art of performing it. We follow every edict of these rituals in our Danvantri Arogya Peedam, a unique concept in the Hindu philosophy of life, in Kilpudupet, Walajapet, Vellore.

With this noble purpose in mind and in the service of Humanity, we have prepared an anthology of a bevy of Homams for a pantheon of Hindu gods which we perform in our Holy Peetam day in day out for the welfare of all living creatures in this Universe created by the Almighty God and we dedicate the same in the service of all believers in the pantheistic philosophy of Sanathana Dharma epitomized by the Slogan: ‘Sarve Janah Sukhino Bhavanthu’ (May all the people in the world be happy and peaceful).
